I tried using the search function but on this new board it sucks because you can't search just titles which used to bring good results, now it shows a lot of unrelated crap.
Anyway, I have been doing barbell rows for a while now and have never liked them, when I up the weight I find myself leaning upwards a little to make it easier which is hard to stop, and also the movement just feels like it's not doing much for me.
Would it be ok to replace this with 1 arm dumbell rows? I feel that in the lats more and there is a much better range of motion with this excercise I think.
I'm doing the Baby Got Back routine
That is fine, I prefer DB rows over BB rows myself I am able to hit my lats more effectively with them.
Success is achieved by doing a little more than you thought you could, and a lot more than anyone else.
On a related note, when doing one-armed DB rows, or just rows in general, how far up should I continue the range of motion? Do I go to the point where my arms are literally not flexible enough to go up any higher? Or do I just hit the chest or what?

One arm DB rows, and seated cable rows for me. I hit the waist too.....
The analogy that was once presented to me was to pretend that you're trying to put that dumbell into your pocket.
(It works for me, anyway.)

Awesome I'll move to DB rows, thanks all
